The Grieve Corp.’s No. 876 oven is a 500°F gas-heated belt conveyor oven currently used for drying brass and aluminum parts at a customer’s facility. The workspace dimensions of this unit measure 22" W × 126" D × 15" H. The workload rides through an 18" long open belt loading zone, 126" long insulated heat zone with recirculated airflow, 6" long open zone, 72" long cooling zone and a 12" long open unloading zone.

350,000 BTU/HR installed in a modulating natural gas burner heats the workspace while a 3,000 cfm, 2-hp recirculating blower furnishes vertical downward airflow to the workload. The oven features an aluminized steel interior and exterior, 4" thick insulated walls and two 12" diameter tube axial fans, each driven by a motor to push/pull air through the cooling zone. A side oven door allows access to the heat chamber.

No. 876 includes a 16" wide, B36-24-14 conveyor belt with 3" high flex plate edges, driven by a ⅓-hp motor with variable speed from 1.3 to 26 feet per minute.

All safety equipment required by IRI, FM and NFPA Standard 86 for gas-heated equipment is onboard, including a 325 cfm, ⅓-hp powered forced exhauster.
